So, how is pooing on something like this? Curious, is it a lot less frequent?
gross maybe, but I’ve been wondering about this
Chris addressed this in the other thread (i don’t have a direct link, sorry.) he basically said you’re taking in less stuff, so expect less waste to come out.
Correct. Go from 4000 calories or more to 1500 or whatever, and yep… less in, less out.
BUT, the V-Diet allows most people to get more fiber than they get with their normal diets, so some are more regular in this department once they adjust.
Thanks I usually go 1-3 x day and might be nice to actually free up some time during my days, HA
I remember I first learned this “poop lesson” – for lack of a better term – back when I did Berardi’s Massive Eating plan. Now, I knew that eating a lot more calories would lead to more bowel movements, but there’s “knowing” and then there’s “KNOWING.”
I was kinda shocked, and I even dubbed the diet Massive Pooping. Berardi was amused.
With the V-Diet, or any fat loss diet really, people experience the opposite. And it’s surprising to them sometimes. But it’s not constipation or anything like that; it’s simply a “food in / food out” thing. Less bulk of food, less poo.
I like to think of it like this: Your body is very nourished – protein, post-training nutrients, aminos, the right carbs at the right times, all those powdered fruits and veggies in Superfood, healthy fats from flax and Flameout, fiber etc – but there’s nothing in excess. You’re giving your body just what it needs to drop fat quickly and no more. So, there’s less waste, no garbage to expel.
